Tomaz Martinek

I knew I want to work in travel industry since my high school years. I was born in Slovenia's capital and spend my youth dreaming about showing other people our lovely country and travelling the world. That's why in 2006 together with Mojca I opened my own travel agency. Since then we are working enthusiastically on preparing new itineraries and we are completely dedicated to our clients' needs. I love my job!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We do multi-country sightseeing tours, combined with different activities from culinary experiences to hiking tours."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Travel has always been my passion. I considered myself lucky that finally I was able to combine my passion and work and become a travel agent. It was pretty easy for me to decide about by studies, as I knew I wanted to work in tourism. I studied tourism planning and in 2006 I opened my own travel agency together with my colleague Mojca. We have been working hard so that we can now happily say that we are confident in our services and we look forward to planning new trips for our beloved clients."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Truffle hunting in Slovenia with a local hunter and his dog. I really like that. It is such a great filling when dog finds the truffle and you can smell it fresh! And of course eat it later with pasta.

One of the thing that is also amazing and I will never forget it is winter skiing on the Morteratsch Glacier, Switzerland’s longest glacier run. Perfect activity for all advanced skiers."

An Amazing Autumn in Slovenia! · Slovenia - Oct 11 - Oct 18, 2021

Traveler: Chris M. - Local specialist: Tomaz Martinek

Had a wonderful time in Slovenia's spectacular autumnal colours! A great way to get back into adventure travelling after having been unable to for so long. Local specialists Tomaz and Jala were both excellent in helping piecing together an excellent itinerary which included the places I wanted to see (Lake Bled, the Julian Alps etc) and the activities I wanted experience including hiking, paragliding and whitewater rafting.

Had a wonderful time in Slovenia's spectacular autumnal colours! A great way to get back into adventure travelling after having been unable to for so long. Local specialists Tomaz and Jala were both excellent in helping piecing together an excellent itinerary which included the places I wanted to see (Lake Bled, the Julian Alps etc) and the activities I wanted experience including hiking, paragliding and whitewater rafting. The Seven Lakes trek through the Julian Alps was both challenging and spectacular, just the way I like it to be. Highlight of the trek for me was Lake Krn, coloured green by the minerals and surrounded by the reddish brown autumnal leaves. Jala did a brilliant job helping me find my hostel by phone when returning to Bled after finishing the trek. All local guides were brilliant in helping me find my way around as well as assisting with the local covid protocols. Paragliding above Lake Bohijn's reflections was amazing while lake Bled, the Jewel in Slovenia's Crown, was so relaxing, especially while enjoying the delicious Bled cakes! Finally, the capital, Ljubljana was very pleasant, especially when colourfully lit up at night. From Ljubljana, I had enough to time explore how spectacular Slovenia is underneath with a day trip to Postojna Cave. My first ever KimKim trip was both and exciting and relaxing experience, so well done during very difficult times in which to travel with the pandemic. Hoping for some more such memorable experiences in 2022.

Traveler: Inge H. - Local specialist: Tomaz Martinek

This was our second time using Kimkim to help with our trip and as before everything was great. Maria, who provided the walking tour, was charming , informative and fun to spend the time with. The Wachau wine tour with Iolo was perfect. Wonderful wines, a special spot for lunch , all in all an enjoyable day. Both restaurant recommended were excellent. Zala responded immediately when we reached out with questions. We wished we were able to stay longer, but we will be back!

Thank you, Tomaz
